Radio Drama

I won the Carleton Hobbs Radio Prize in 1978 and joined the BBC Radio Rep for six months. I continued working regularly in radio, recording over 200 plays. In 1982, I got the part of David Archer in The Archers, and still play him today. For the full story of that, there's my autobiography, Being David Archer - And Other Unusual Ways of Earning a Livingand the accompanying website

In 2009, aged 56, I played a 28 year old MI5 officer in A Question of Royalty with Johnny Vegas and Ricky Tomlinson - directed by Dirk Maggs. Also that year, Nicholas Farrell's brother in A Hit To The Heart with Niamh Cusack and Lucy Fleming - directed by Gordon House.

I do a lot of work for Big Finish, recording many episodes of Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sherlock Holmes, Space 1999, Counter Measures, Survivors etc. Here's the full list.
